Thanks to everyone who posted links on my last post, besides a couple articles it wasn’t anything I hadn’t seen before but it was push to get those things added which is great.
- XML.com: Very Dynamic Web Interfaces
- ONLamp.com: A Simpler Ajax Path
- Ajax Blog
- dojo: the browser toolkit (note this has a AJAX lib in it as well)
Reviewing this new round of content I noticed a couple things, there are lots of same old intro to XMLHttpRequest posts, and most libraries and toolkits have poor documentation even if they have lots of it.
The most important thing for any project open source or not is to getting started guide that gets a user acomplishing your projects main purpose with as little effort as possible (Yeah I know phpDocumentor is missing this too).
On to different point, the basic CMS in wordpress sucks for managing this, anyone have any suggestions my needs are.
Easy to create and use simple templates for each item
The ability to tag items so they can be in multiple categories
The ability to view items in category lists like they are now
If anyone has any suggestions on some opensource project that I can integrate easily with wordpress (shouldn’t be hard its cms is mod_rewrite based) let me know. I wouldn’t even mind hacking up some code but I really don’t need a new large project, cause plain old brute force text editing always works even if its painful.
Also on a totally unrelated note, wordpress timezone management sucks. Times should still be UTC on the darn rss feed even if they are MST when view on the blog, or at least they should be reported as MST and not UTC with 7 hours subtracted, now to hack in a solution.
